Your data is pro­tec­ted as part of the leg­al pro­vi­sions of the Gen­er­al Data Pro­tec­tion Reg­u­la­tion (GDPR) of the Ger­man Digital Services Act (DSA) and oth­er reg­u­la­tions gov­ern­ing data pri­vacy.

Re­mem­ber that there are al­ways se­cur­ity breaches when trans­mit­ting data over the web (e.g. com­mu­nic­a­tion by email). It is im­possible to achieve com­plete pro­tec­tion from un­au­thor­ised ac­cess by third parties.

If you have any ques­tions about data pro­tec­tion, or you wish to ex­ert your rights or claims to your per­son­al data, please con­tact our data pro­tec­tion of­ficer Mr Mat­thi­as Krohe by send­ing an email to datens­

Data pro­cessing

This data pro­tec­tion no­tice con­tains in­form­a­tion about data pro­cessing on our web pages and about the cor­res­pond­ing di­git­al pro­cesses.

The sub­ject of data pro­tec­tion is per­son­al data. Ac­cord­ing to art. 4 (1) GDPR, this is all in­form­a­tion re­lat­ing to iden­ti­fied or iden­ti­fi­able nat­ur­al per­sons. This in­cludes, for ex­ample, in­form­a­tion such as your name, mail­ing ad­dress, e-mail ad­dress or tele­phone num­ber, but may also in­clude us­age data such as your IP ad­dress. Every ac­cess to our homepage and every re­triev­al of a file stored on the homepage is logged in serv­er log files. The stor­age is for in­tern­al sys­tem-re­lated and stat­ist­ic­al pur­poses. The fol­low­ing are logged:

  • Name of the retrieved file
  • Date and time of retrieval
  • Transferred amount of data
  • Notification of successful retrieval
  • Web browser
  • Requesting domain
  • Operating system used
  • IP address used
  • Search words

Ad­di­tion­al per­son­al data will only be pro­cessed if you provide this in­form­a­tion vol­un­tar­ily, for ex­ample in the con­text of an in­quiry. Your data will not be passed on to third parties without your con­sent.

If our di­git­al of­fers of­fer the pos­sib­il­ity to op­tion­ally enter per­son­al data, we ask you to check for your­self which data you would like to dis­close to us. The man­dat­ory fields marked as such are re­quired to pro­cess your in­quiry or or­der. Any ad­di­tion­al data col­lec­ted is vol­un­tary and is used to op­tim­ize our ser­vice of­fer­ing and, if ne­ces­sary, for stat­ist­ic­al pur­poses.

Applicant information

  1. For what purposes do we process personal data?
    We process your personal data for the purpose of your application for an employment relationship, insofar as this is necessary for the decision on the establishment of an employment relationship with us. Furthermore, we may process your personal data insofar as this is necessary for the defense of asserted legal claims against us arising from the application process. Insofar as an employment relationship between you and us is established, we may further process the personal data already received from you for purposes of the employment relationship.

This may be general data about you (such as your name, address and contact details), information about your professional qualifications and school education or information about further professional training or other information that you provide to us in connection with your application. In addition, we may process job-related information that you have made publicly available, such as a profile on professional social media networks.
  3. What are the categories of recipients of your data?
    During the application phase, your personal data will only be disclosed to the management and senior employees of the departments.
  4. How long will your data be stored?
    We store your personal data for as long as is necessary to make a decision about your application. If an employment relationship between you and us is not established, your application documents will be deleted six months after notification of the rejection decision, unless longer storage is required due to legal disputes.

    Should we wish to retain your application documents for longer, we will obtain your express written consent to do so. With your consent, we will store your application documents for up to two years.

Note on data transfer to the USA

Our web­site con­tains sev­er­al tools from com­pan­ies based in the USA. When these tools are en­abled, they can for­ward your per­son­al data to the US serv­er of that par­tic­u­lar com­pany. We would like to in­form you that the USA is not a se­cure third coun­try as defined by EU data pro­tec­tion law. US com­pan­ies are ob­liged to di­vulge per­son­al data to se­cur­ity agen­cies without you as the per­son con­cerned hav­ing any right to take leg­al ac­tion to pre­vent this. As a res­ult, it can­not be ruled out that US au­thor­it­ies (e.g. In­tel­li­gence ser­vices) will pro­cess, ana­lyse and per­man­ently save data on US serv­ers for sur­veil­lance pur­poses. We have no in­flu­ence over these pro­cessing activ­it­ies.

Google Ads Conversion Tracking

Our website uses Google conversion tracking. If you have reached our website via an ad placed by Google, Google Ads will set a cookie on your computer. The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on an ad placed by Google. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognise that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked across AdWords customers' websites. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. The customers learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that can be used to personally identify users.

If you do not wish to participate in the tracking, you can reject the setting of a cookie required for this - for example, by means of a browser setting that generally deactivates the automatic setting of cookies or by setting your browser in such a way that cookies from the domain "" are blocked.

Please note that you may not delete the opt-out cookies as long as you do not want any measurement data to be recorded. If you have deleted all your cookies in the browser, you must set the respective opt-out cookie again.

3. Purpose

Tak­ing pho­tos of events and pub­lish­ing the pho­tos on the web­site, on so­cial me­dia chan­nels and in prin­ted me­dia (spe­cific­ally: cata­logues, bro­chures) for pub­li­city work and to show the activ­it­ies of Th. Gey­er GmbH & Co. KG.


Jus­ti­fied in­terest in ac­cord­ance with point f) of Art. 6(1) GDPR as well as Sec­tions 22, 23, 24 KUG (Art Copy­right Act) and Sec­tions 14, 28 Fed­er­al Data Pro­tec­tion Act (BDSG): Pub­li­city work and present­a­tion of the activ­it­ies of Th. Gey­er GmbH & Co. KG. You have the right to ob­ject to pro­cessing. The ob­jec­tion can be ad­dressed to: datenschutz@thgey­ (though it is pos­sible to make an ob­jec­tion in any oth­er way). It is as­sumed, however, that the in­terests of Th. Gey­er GmbH & Co. KG in the tak­ing and use of pho­tos will not ex­cess­ively in­ter­fere with the rights and freedoms of nat­ur­al per­sons, es­pe­cially be­cause they have entered the pub­lic space, the fact that pho­tos would be taken and used was com­mu­nic­ated in ad­vance and at the event, and when tak­ing and pub­lish­ing the pho­tos it is en­sured that no jus­ti­fied in­terests of the people de­pic­ted are vi­ol­ated. If the rights and freedoms of a per­son de­pic­ted are vi­ol­ated un­der par­tic­u­larly ex­ten­u­at­ing cir­cum­stances, however, we will pre­vent fur­ther pro­cessing us­ing suit­able meas­ures. De­le­tion can­not take place in prin­ted me­dia that have already been pub­lished. De­le­tion will take place on the web­site or on so­cial me­dia chan­nels where tech­nic­ally pos­sible.


The data is deleted five years after creation.

  • Con­tract­ors and con­tract pro­cessors (e.g. event pho­to­graph­ers, com­munit­ies, ...) who are in­volved in pro­cessing (tak­ing and pub­lic­a­tion of pho­tos).
  • Tax con­sult­ants, au­thor­it­ies (tax of­fice, oth­er au­thor­it­ies) and leg­al rep­res­ent­at­ives (when en­for­cing rights or de­fend­ing claims or as part of of­fi­cial pro­ceed­ings)
  • Sponsors/Partners

The data is made pub­licly avail­able on­line and pub­lished on so­cial me­dia chan­nels. The data is pub­lished in prin­ted me­dia and is dis­trib­uted to the pub­lic in a lim­ited print­ing run. The data is not for­war­ded to re­cip­i­ents who pur­sue their own pur­poses with this data. On so­cial me­dia chan­nels, however, it may tran­spire that the so­cial me­dia ser­vice will ob­tain rights of use to the pub­lished data. It is not in­ten­ded for data to be sent to re­cip­i­ents in an ex­tern­al coun­try (out­side of the EU) or to an in­ter­na­tion­al or­gan­isa­tion.
